Butlin’s, Thomas Cook and Carnival Cruise Line are among brands whose identities have recently been hijacked by fraudsters to obtain consumers’ personal details in fake promotions, according to Hoax-Slayer, a website that highlights internet scams.

A Thomas Cook spokeswoman said: “We are aware of the page and reported it to Facebook at the end of last week to get it removed. Our social media team is also advising customers it is not an official Thomas Cook page.”
